My sincere condolence to the Kagiri family for the demise of Mzee. May his soul RIP.
We lived in the same neighbourhood and the occasional visits we exchanged coupled with endless football games we played just rekindled my childhood memory of my great friend George – ‘Mike Bolt’ of our youthful time 🤣, will remain cherished forever.
I remember your mum – the disciplinarian, fresh in my memory as if it was the other day.
Your big bro macharia who gave us the enthusiasm to join higher education while he was a student at Chania.
All your loving sisters – I still recall them as if it was yesterday.
George keep in touch,
Your friend Dan- famously nicknamed Dandori by Abdi- if you can remember him.
